Secretary of Education Arne Duncan to award grants for school reform

The federal stimulus plan passed by Congress also has $5 Billion to award lasting school reform. According to today's Deseret News, states are supposed to:
  • Improve teacher quality and get good teachers into high-poverty schools;
  • Set up sophisticated data systems to track student learning;
  • Boost the quality of academic standards and tests;
  • Intervene to help struggling schools.

Applications for the special grants will be available later this spring.

Thanks for reading. Rick
